Your word is good enough.

Sorry… I don’t do ‘carpenter’ humor! But knowing you, the answer prolly is “C”! :wink:

No, I didn’t Google it, but I did just now…

Right, but that was aimed at Jeffrey.

As far as answering prolly C, do you know any game shows you you can say prolly? So that’s where my logic comes from.
